Thought this would be fun. Theme was, food and service were not. Expensive, poor service and below average food. You really ought to body swerve this place, which is a shame as had so much promise. There is so much choice on the park that this is a real let down.

To get your food you grab a tray and queue up, ordering at the counter or choosing food that's already there, such as pizza slices. We ate here a couple of times and had fries, burgers & pizza plus drinks and snacks. Once you have your food find a table, sit, eat and explain to the kids what the different... More

Loved the theme and decorations in this cafe. They probably had the worst food I have ever eaten anywhere, though. The rotisserie chicken was extremely dry and flavorless. I had to eat it with ketchup to choke it down. My husband's ribs were dry and tough and were inedible even with extra sauce. The potatoes were way over seasoned. Cooked... More

Such a great theme- too bad the food was the scariest part of this experience. I expected to pay high prices at Universal but did not expect to pay $18 for the worst hamburger ever- like worse than school cafeteria food. I do not think it was meat, really... do not eat here

I normally always try to find a positive in every review, but I can not find one for Monsters Cafe. The seating in there is awful, the food was cold and just not good, and the staff was overall terrible!

Geez, I know we going to get overcharged for food at places like this but could it be somewhat edible? Terrible food and terrible service.

Classically poor food at inflated prices. Better off at City Walk and get a real meal at those prices. Chicken over cooked, burgers dry as could be.

I just was not impressed with any Universal restaurants - overprice (of course it is a park) but not enough food and not very good. The ice cream and shakes in the entire park are very inconsistent. This place has the worst shakes - yuk.... frozen yahoo?!

You are able to get your food as you walk through the line. The atmosphere is cute with the monsters theme. The food was great, if kids are getting the pizza slice, it's huge.

Was really expecting some cool monster themed decor and was really disappointed by what I saw. It was just blah. The food was absolutely terrible and the service wasn't great either. Just a complete disappointment. Won't be going back.
